The Israeli occupation authorities on Sunday decided to prevent a Palestinian medical delegation from entering the Gaza Strip.
Ministry of Health said in a statement that the Israeli authorities refused to issue the necessary entry permits for the members of the medical delegation formed by the Palestinian Minister of Health in Ramallah Jawad Awwad to assist medical staff in Gaza.
The Ministry stressed that this ban is a further crime committed against the Gazan people who are also prevented from travelling abroad for treatment.
The Ministry called on international organizations to pressure Israel to allow medical teams to visit Gaza and help the staff working there.
